Must have order, just say: "Med, RB, Sauce and Onions. Fries. Roll. Finger"

I live in Waltham now, and I will make the nearly 40-minute drive to go up and pick up some Roast Beef sandwiches. This place is worth all of the awards it has up there. The staff is even getting pretty friendly.

For those born here in the Merrimack Valley the name Riley's Roast Beef brings back fond memories of late night visits for piles of delicious roast beef and fries. Often imitated, never duplicated Riley's lives on as Harrison. Come see why generations come here for piles of tender rare roast beef on soft grilled rolls.

I eat here when visiting my son at college. The food is home cooked delicious. Draws all the locals, and college crowd. People line up for the food. The sandwiches are great. Try this local favorite out - you won't be sorry.

It seems like there is a "famous roast beef" place on every corner in the Boston area, but this is one of the best I've tasted! The roast beef was so tender, it just melted in your mouth, served on a perfectly toasted bun. The onion rings are so tasty...perfectly seasoned, crunchy, and yummy!

The service was mediocre, and not super friendly, or memorable. This is the reason Harrison's didn't get a perfect score in my book. Eat in or take out. The restaurant is not fancy...a typical pizza style place...clean & bright though. Feel lucky this little gem is in my town!
